Sugar cubes take me back to Citizen's Bank. You see children, there was a time when people actually had to park their cars, WALK into the bank and do business face-to-face. When your Grammy was doing said business, your mommy and Aunt Amanda were over at the coffee station throwing back as many sugar cubes as possible. We would break for a second to grab a bag of salty popcorn and then take right back up with the sugar cube madness. Ohhhhhhh the sugar cube!!
Bailey and I used the trial and error recipe and it worked the first time!!
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons of water mixed with 3 drops of liquid food coloring
1 candy mold in desired shape
Combine all of the ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and stir with a fork until the color is distributed evenly through the sugar.
Use a teaspoon (the old English standard! 1 teaspoon= 1 lump of sugar) to fill your candy molds. A butter knife can be used to even out the tops.
Let the filled candy mold set for 15 minutes. In the meantime, cover your mixing bowl with a damp paper towel so the remaining sugar doesn't dry out.
Finally, organize them into corny Shamrocks to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!!
